Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume - 100 ml

Romano Ricci, the self-described “offbeat dandy of the perfume world”, only used one element—Cetalox—to create this minimalist perfume. Even if you'’ve never heard of it, you’'ve undoubtedly picked up its scent. Used as a back note in thousands of fragrances, Cetalox (a synthetic substitute for grey amber) takes center stage in Not a Perfume. The result is elegant, pure, spicy, and completely allergen-free.

Had to Buy It
Purchased

I wore this fragrance when I first received the sample and remember thinking how much I loved this scent, but lost it in the bottom of my purse. While trying to decide which fragrance to buy among the various fragrance samples I received from Birchbox, I just found Juliette again. I had to spray little scent cards with their corresponding names and wait for them to dry to get an idea of what the real scent would be and after much hemming and hawing over which one to go with I finally settled on this one. Among all of the choices this fragrance was the most memorable. It is such a soft and delightfully pretty fragrance. I will be wearing this in every season because it's just that pretty.

Like nothing I've ever worn

Cetalox is synthetic ambergris, not synthetic grey amber, for anyone who wishes to know. Ambergris is one of the oldest perfume ingredients, and, in its natural form, a little gory. Thank goodness for this amazing synthetic version!!

When I wear this I know, without a doubt, I don't smell like anyone else, and I smell BETTER than everyone else!

I feel smart, sexy, and (dare I say) superior when I wear this.

great perfume for anyone

I loved this perfume. it was very long lasting and not to strong. it has such an unusual smell that everyone I came in contact with wanted to know what it was. I will be buying this from now on. I ran out of the sample and used my other perfume and my boyfriend asked why did I change perfumes. I thought he never noticed. great product. the scent is so different it keeps you wondering

Not a perfume, not true.

I put a minimal amount of this one, and it smelled like I took a bath in my grandmother's perfume. The scent itself - an hour later and after scrubbing my wrists and neck - is probably decent, but this is SOOOO overpowering that it's just gross.

I put it on for a special occasion tonight and it's just horrible. I can't get it off. I'm trapped in this cloud of Sunday morning old lady brunch stench.

It probably could be nice, but it is so darn overpowering I'm too distraught to tell.

And, my hands started burning when I washed it off. Still burning. And my special occasion date with my husband isn't too romantic anymore given that I smell like his grandmother.

They lie. It IS a perfume. Even if it's some kind of crafty formula, has an asterisk after it "technically" isn't a perfume, it SO is.

I wish I'd paid closer attention to the bad reviews.

I'm not usually a perfume wearer...

I don't usually wear perfume except for special occassions, relying on the less potent scents of hair products and skin creams but NOT A PERFUME is absolutely perfect for those of us who have sensitive smellers and forgo and daily perfume, it's very light but smells gorgeous (if something *can* smell gorgeous, this product certainly does). It's definitely a daily wearable and won't be too overpowering for anyone who you may work with or spend your days around. I know we all like to think we smell like roses all by ourselves, but NOT A PERFUME will up the natural scent game of the rosiest among us. 

Even works for the very sensitive!

This will be the scent my children and grandchildren will remember me with. Not a Perfume is very subtle and when I wear it I get compliments everytime. Even my dental hygienist has started wearing it and she was unable to wear any kind of scent before in worry of it bothering a patient. But it hasn't!

Juliette has a gun, Not a perfume is amazing! It has such a unique smell! My friend received a sample in a precious box and from the first smell, I was hooked! The packaging was really nice and the bottle is very simple. This fragrance has a fresh, clean and long lasting sent! I have received so many compliments and would recommend it to anyone!

I've never had so many people ask what scent I wear — over the last 2 years, I've enlisted at least two dozen women. Love love love.
